It is a well known fact in the greyhound community that greyhounds are not 'cat friendly' outdoors. You can't blame or change years of evolution and training. it is something we cover extensively during home visits and adoptions.
I wouldn't call Cody cat tolerant indoors..
I just wish someone would have told this to my neighbor's cat.
Last Sunday night, during bedtime potty..the worst happened. My neighbor's cat had, stupidly, wandered in to my yard unbeknownst to me. The backyard light apparently didn't scare her off either.
So needless to say..Cody won that fight.
But he did not come out unscathed.
The kitty managed to bite him in the ankle. I had thought it was just a few scratches that night..but by the next morning. Things had gotten very very bad. We took him to our vet and it was not broken but badly infected (less than 24 hours!). But after 24 hours of antibiotics..it was worse. So we rushed him to the emergency specialty vet. They shaved it, scrubbed it, lanced it and put him on HIGH power antibiotics.
Rest in Peace, Spongebob.
